I have a few dipes that were apparently seconds (I bought them used, so I'm guessing). The snaps on the front are obviously mis-placed (side-snapping dipes). Can I remove them and replace them in the correct spot, or is that going to leave a huge really obvious hole? Anyone know?

resin snaps are a pita to remove. it destroys the snap, so you'll need new snaps & snap pliers or a press. it will leave a hole that will need to be patched. I'd just leave them where they already are.<br><br>
I've removed broken snaps before & had to patch the spot where they were before I could put a new snap on in the same spot.
